Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week’s topic is Bookish Pet Peeves.
Being interrupted while reading
Stickers on book covers
Books in the same series that are different sizes (varying heights, paperback vs hardcover, etc.)
Sequels info-dumping what happened in the previous book (specifically in a long chunk at the beginning)
When instead of a synopsis on the back there’s just blurbs from the book or reviews- I want to know what the book is about
When publication dates are delayed or we have to wait years for a sequel
Book covers made for the movie/tv adaptation
Multiple names for the same character (first name, given name, title, nickname, name only their family uses, etc.)
That was all I could come up with this week. What bookish pet peeves do you have?
